Commenting article: Bulgaria Shoots for R&D Spending of 1.5% of GDP in 2020

Bulgaria's Finance Ministry has unveiled a "National Program for Reforms 2015" designed to boost economic and labor competitiveness with a variety of measures within EU's "Europe 2020" strategy.

The National Reform Program was presented Monday by Deputy Finance Minister Boryana Pencheva at a public discussion at the Council of Ministers in Sofia, including EU Funds Minister Tomislav Donchev as well as employers' associations, syndicates, and independent economists.

The Reform Program specifies Bulgaria's major goals within the application of the Europe 2020, including reaching a 76% employment by 2020, and spending on research and development amounting to 1.5% of the GDP.

We shall fulfill the 5-year plan comrades!
The minister has also promised a 12.333333% decrease in rainfall and a .001731% decrease in global warming, to meet the EUSSR average.

Joke aside, I think Bulgaria is suffering from too many people with a university education.
We don't need more "economists" counting boxes in warehouses.
